So as the Nissan Cube stable on JDMST grows there seems to be more questions from new and prospective owners. Lets use this thread to introduce our new rides, post up about new mods we've found and ask questions rather than clogging each-others build threads.
If you have a Cube, please introduce your car in the following format:
Cube or Cubic: Model: Year: Engine: Colour: Current Modifications: Future Plans: Link to build thread: Pictures:

Hey fellow Cubists!
Thanks for taking the time out to make this thread Juliette, Im sure the jdmsters will appreciate it like i have surely.
Cube or Cubic: BZ11 Cube Model: EX/BX/SX? Year: 2002 Engine: CR14DE Colour: Baby Blue Current Modifications: RS Watanabe's, Bolt-on-Flares Future Plans: OEM Weathershields, Fog lights, Replace stone-chip crack windscreen , Fix Front bar . So sad, roof racks hmmm Link to build thread: None yet.. =/ I should make one. EDIT: Build Thread here Pictures:
Also, just in case someone wanted to know, these cars use the same front pads as the Tiida. The part number is 41060-ax085.
I would just like to post up a few things I have noticed.
Due to how upright our windscreens are, they seem to cop a lot of stones. I have already taken mine to get repaired, but it looks like I may have to go again if the latest chip turns into a crack.
For the 1.4L guys: For some stupid reason, Nissan decided that the best place for the intake pipe was directly above the exhaust manifold. During stop/start driving, I noticed a fair bit of power loss and response from heat soak. This car has no power to begin with, so I thought I would knock-up a heat shield to minimise the effect.
Worked great! car doesnt feel as boggy anymore:-)
Now I just have to fix my squeaky alternator belt.
Anyway, this isnt a build thread, so Ill shutup.
